Man United transfers: Bundesliga expert gives Javier Hernandez update

Bundesliga expert Jan Aage Fjortoft says Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is close to a move to Bayern Leverkusen

Javier Hernandez is close to completing a £10.1m move to Bayer Leverkusen from Manchester United, according to Jan Aage Fjortoft.

The Mexico international spent the 2013/14 campaign on a season-long loan at Real Madrid after he was deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.

However, Hernandez has struggled to secure any first-team action in the current campaign despite Wayne Rooney’s well-documented struggles up front.

And Bundesliga expert Fjortoft gave United supporters an update on Hernandez’s future as the 27-year-old seemingly moves closer to a move to Leverkusen.

The striker scored nine goals in 33 games in all competitions for Carlo Ancelotti’s Madrid side last season.

Hernandez has netted 59 times in 154 games for the Red Devils following his move to Old Trafford from Guadalajara after the 2010 World Cup.
